I just finished one of the most interesting books I have read in a really long time, which is saying a lot, considering the last two books I read before this were very good. The book I just finished is called Complications: A Surgeon's Notes on an Imperfect Science by Atul Gawande. It's a collection of essays by a surgeon about different facets of medicine. It was riveting. It was so good that I just went out and bought his second book, which I am anxious to start reading. I have become really interested in reading about medicine and disease lately -- veterinary and human. I feel like I know far too little and I am hoping to remedy that.
